|One of the best ornamental grasses, it is grown for its huge, graceful flower stalks in a variety of colors including green, purple, golden yellow, brown, and silver. It looks good even in winter, with flowering spikes on stout stems that often last into the season, and dense tufts of shiny, dark green leaves. Plant in moist soil and, in hot climates, in semi-shade. Will tolerate some shade elsewhere. Deschampsia holciformus (Pacific Hair Grass) is drought-tolerant.
Large, airy flower stalks are spectacular when backlit by the late afternoon sun. Best for natural gardens or perennial borders.
